Here are the answers I received from OneTouch about the questions above:
-Unfortunately this meter does not link to the pump. They’ve heard this feedback from the broader community and have passed it on to their product team.
-OneTouch Test Strips are always covered by Medicare Part B. (Note: Coinsurance or co-payment and deductibles apply). OneTouch is working toward the best possible private plan coverage for these test strips. They’ve secured coverage on some major health plans and continue to add more. If OneTouch Gold Test Strips are not covered by your health plan, they are helping to bridge the gap by contributing up to $25/mo.
